COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Viborg Imperial Stout brewed in the English style like those that were originally exported to the Russian market. The stout we brew here at Viborg bryghus is black, full. We use round handed amounts of peat smoked malt and English licorice. The full flavor and the high alcohol make this a beer for gents and real stout enthusiasts. It’s hand brewed by the use of a gas kettle and open fire, and provides the pronounced caramel flavor. Top fermented and cellared in 4 weeks. We recommend it to accompany lamb, ox, sausages and dark chocolate.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2008
Red-black colored with little light brown head. Strong roasted coffee aroma with almost too much sweetness. Medium bodied. Flavor also starts with strong sweetness, roastiness and some berries also here. Well, could be better with not this much sweetness.

Christian (11274) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Black with a light brown semi-lasting head. First aroma is of candy licorice, then comes a smoked note and a little fruit, chocolate and peat/medicine. Sweetish and slightly sour dark malt flavour with distinct peat. Alcohol and sweetness in a strange finish. But if you like Islay whisky, this is a must-try beer.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2008
Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Hazy dark brown colour, quite close to black. Head was pale brown, and didn’t last for too long. Aroma is fruity along with chocolate and roasted malts. Flavour is smoked and roasted malts along with some weird sticky sweetness of fruits and alcohol. Some mild notes of licorice as it warms up. the sweetness in this one messes it up for me, otherwise it could have been really good.

50 cL Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a reddish hue and a dense milk chocolate brown head. Aroma is slight peach fruity and chocolate malty aroma. Quite smoked flavour, leads into a mild roasted malt and chocolate malt flavour. Ends slight bitter.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of yespr, thanks buddy] Large beige creamy thick head that mostly lasted. Dark mahogany color. Good display of lacework. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, hint of smoke and liquorish. Over the palate nice smoke notes with heavy roasted malt. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter flavour with light sweet notes. Bitter chocolate like finish.
